CFP: Academic Autobiographies

Intermezzo, a digital longform publication associated with Enculturation (http://www.enculturation.net) seeks submissions that address academic autobiography.

David Shumway once labeled the academic star system as one where autobiography marginalizes community in favor of the individual. Indeed, too few academics pen autobiographies unless they are so-called stars. Yet, all academics have a story to tell, one that merges the personal and the professional, the anecdotal and the political, the banal and the important. Academics should want to tell their stories.

SLCA: "Positions" October 15-17, 2015 (New Orleans)

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 12:42pm
Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts (SCLA)

Taken on its own, "positions" appears an innocuous and static term, suggesting a location, a posture, a place, a job or status. And yet, positioning is always implicit in the critical endeavor, evident not only in the placement of signifiers within a text, but within constellations of texts that we read comparatively. One could further argue that the various acts of positioning and the positions we hold manifest themselves in every facet of human interaction: political, rhetorical, theoretical, ideological, sexual, psychological, cultural and so on.

Haunting in Short Fiction and Its Adaptations: 20-21 November 2015, University of Angers, France

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 12:41pm
European Network for Short Fiction Research (ENSFR) (with University of Angers, Edge Hill University, University of Leuven, University of Le Mans, University of Nantes)

There is a long tradition of haunting in short fiction, often appearing in the form of ghost stories, folk tales, fairy tales, and legends. Short narrative indeed appears to embrace the supernatural. Elizabeth Bowen explains, for example, in the preface to A Day in the Dark and Other Stories that while she uses "the supernatural" in her short stories, she considers it "unethical' to do so in a novel.

CFP: Memories on the Move: Asian Connections; Deadline June 30, 2015

Monday, February 23, 2015 - 11:13am

Memories on the Move: Asian Connections
Concentric: Literary and Cultural Studies
Vol. 42 No. 1 | March 2016
Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2015

In the last ten years memory studies has experienced a gradual shift towards comparative, interdisciplinary, and border-crossing perspectives. Studies on cosmopolitan memory (Levy and Sznaider), multidirectional memory (Rothberg), transcultural memory (Crownshaw), travelling memory (Erll), or transnational memory (De Chesari and Rigney) highlight the circulatory, competing, overlapping, fluid and dynamic nature of the processes of remembrance and cultural memory.

OVERVIEW

CFP Extension of Submission Deadline «Ticontre. Teoria Testo Traduzione» n. IV (ottobre 2015), Furio Jesi

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 10:11am
«Ticontre. Teoria Testo Traduzione»

Archaeologist, Germanist, philologist, literary critic, poet, translator and, above all, mythologist: Furio Jesi's intellectual profile escapes any attempt of classification. Despite his premature death, Jesi left a vast production, which stands out both for the radicalism of its thought and for its variety. We find references to literary documentation, and especially to mythology, since his early studies on archaeology - see, for instance, his 1958 article devoted to 'archetypal connections'.

[UPDATE] CFP: Toy Stories: The Toy as Hero

updated: 
Sunday, February 22, 2015 - 10:14pm
Tanya Jones, M.Ed & Chris Stoneley

Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.
Possible pieces for consideration:

updated: 
Sunday, February 22, 2015 - 3:53pm
PAMLA

This special session takes the 2015 PAMLA conference theme of "Literature and Time" as an occasion for reconsidering a topic that has interested Faulkner critics for as long as there has been Faulkner criticism. We invite papers that explore the continuing relevance (endurance?) of time as a conceptual framework (formal, historical, psychological, philosophical, ecological, etc.) for understanding any aspect of Faulkner's work, life, or reception, as well as Faulkner's relevance for new critical models for thinking about time.

Please send questions to kfujie@lclark.edu and submit 250-word abstracts via the online system at pamla.org by May 1, 2015.
